Greetings,

I have a GE Profile side by side refrigerator that is about 15 years old. 4 years ago I was forced to take a job out of the state so, I left the fridge full of gallon jugs of water and frozen food and left. (I've heard it's very hard on a fridge to leave it empty while running.)

I came back one year later and discovered the freezer had a 4" layer of frost/ice on the back of it and both the freezer and fridge was about 60 degrees. It appeard the freezer section had frozen and warmed multiple times. At that point I completly emptied the fridge of the now ruined food, unplugged it and let it thaw out.

That was three years ago and it's been unplugged ever since.

I was able to get a new job and now have moved back home. My question to the group is this fridge even worth fixing? It has not run in 3 years and even if I can fix it could I count on it staying that way? I've read that it's bad for a fridge to sit for long periods of time because the seals in the compressor will dry out or something along those lines.

Any thoughts?

Here are your parts, you seem to be missing a few letters of the model number.
Replacement parts for TFH22PR models | AppliancePartsPros.com

Plug it in and give it a try after all you have nothing to loose,
If it runs and cools down then you can look into your original problem.

It sounds like the unit had/has a defrost problem and that should not be that expensive to repair.
